Fifty years after the first coronary artery bypass grafting, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) issued together guidelines for myocardial revascularization. In this document ESC and EACTS provide recommendations for revascularization of stable coronary artery disease, non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome, ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and revascularization in patients with different risk factors. The authors underline the importance of interaction between cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and referring physicians for choosing the best possible revascularization approach.
